Dispatches From Korea: Lee Seung Jio: Advancing Columns at MMCA


Following his first solo exhibition in New York at Tina Kim Gallery, Lee Seung Jio is now the subject of a large-scale retrospective at the National Museum of Modern and Contemporary Art in Korea.
"Lee Seung Jio: Advancing Columns" chronologically details Lee’s life-long artistic journey in pursuit of the essence or the “nucleus.” In addition to some 90 paintings produced from 1968 to 1990 in response to the changing times, this exhibition introduces archival materials on the avant-garde group Origin and the Korean Avant-Garde Association (AG) of which Lee was a founding member, presenting their respective achievements in a new light.
